A Place to Learn and Grow

Field Trips

Visit the Columbus Botanical Garden and let your students “learn naturally” in a fun interactive outdoor setting! The Garden offers both guided and self-guided programs giving your students the opportunity to discover all that nature has to offer!

Field Trips

Start thinking like a scientist with lessons and activities focused on the importance of making observations, asking questions, classifying organisms, and recording data.

Students will learn how scientists use observations to form questions about the natural world, how and why scientists sort and classify objects based on their attributes, and why it’s important to record the observations that they make.

Two sessions are offered (K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade) with each session geared towards the abilities and comprehension of each age group.
